My Travel Experience of Labrang Monastery I

Post Time:2014-04-11 Views:

  Every two or three years, I always take the advantage of the holiday of Spring festival to take the silk road tour, which can give me some fresh idea on operating the tours for my distinguish clients. With thespeed development of Chinese economic, there are some new hotels set up, as well as some good guide join in our group. As a professional tour operator, it is our obligation to provide the best service for everyone. On 24thJan, I visited Pingyao old town, Xi’an, Chengdu, and Lanzhou. Pingyao is a ideal town to experiencethe taste of Spring festival. I think this year I will put pingyao in the silk road tour packgaes. Regarding on Chengdu, which is just personal affair which is visiting my aunty. And today I would like to share my travel experience of Labrang Monastery, which has a history of 300 years. As another center for conveying Gelug Sect (yellow sect) of Tibetan Buddhism, it has six colleges and 108 branch temples. Since opening to the publicin 1984, it has attracted a great number of tourists. In the morning of 6th Feb, about 12pm, we (my husband and daughter) arrived in Lanzhou by train from Chengdu. Then we drove to Xiahe County which took us abput 3 hours. Once we stepped in the town, we found that the streetis totally different from years ago. The typical Tibetan style architectural spread on the two sides of the main street. 90% population is Tibetan, the rest 10% are Hui (they are muslim) and the touristsJ. First I checked the best hotel inXiahe-Aviation hotel. In my opinion, the hotel absolutely can satisfy our clients. But we select the youth hostel for thereason of sharing the experience of the travelling with others. After we checked in the hotel, we were going to visit theButter Sculpture Display Ceremony in the evening. After we finish the dinner, it is totally dark, there are no lights on theroad to the entrance of the Labrang monastery. Ten thousands of Tibetan believers crowed into the Monastery, we backedto the hotel and considered to go again in midnight. we stilll can't step in the monastery in 12 o'clock in the midnight, the same reason: too crowed and then my husband said he would look after the daughter and then i tried hard to the main hall of the monastery and then take the quick pictures. it is rush, but excited as well ! Forgive my poor language that can descript the beautiful of the Butter Sculpture in the lights. share some pictures! I will arrange the other tour in the spring festival of 2013 which will cover Pingyao, Xi'an, Lanzhou, Dunhuang, Turpan and Kashgar, if you are interested, please contact me via email
